Inspired Ideas: Green Walls

Written by Rosa Hinton

This month our design team share their insights into green walls. Design director, James Smith, says ‘Where space is at a premium, or a dull wall needs bringing to life, green walls are a popular choice in many urban garden settings. Plant choices can be styled to suit all tastes from minimal greens to an abundance of colour and flower, boosting ecology and habitats.’ 

Here you’ll find some inspiration of the different ways green walls can be used – with a mix of projects that we have designed and built and also built for others…
